Pretty Selmer Mark VI, medium bow, #192k, in great overall condition with high F#. The lacquer is highly intact and a very well done relacquer and the engraving was well preserved! It has a unique hue with a bit more orange in the mix and it really grows on me. It also has high F#. No Serial # on the neck. No major damage to report. The worst wear or discoloration can be seen on the Eb/C pinky touch points. Other sax history: It was owned by the last two owners (older fellow, and the recent owner: very good high school player) who both took good care of it.
The medium bow started on the earlier models (72k-88k, short bow prior) and later changed to a less desired long bow. This design is attributed to the better intonation especially affecting low C playability and surrounding notes. The medium bow has been considered the best design, thus Selmer returned to it along the Mark VI run.
Current pad set up is tan pads with plastic domed resos (standard for original, Selmer setup). They have a lot of life left.
CASE: Upgraded, New Protec ProPac case ($184.00), rectangle with storage and shoulder strap.
